Guide/driver was wonderful. We had a mix of German and English speakers and he seemlessly explained everything well in both languages randomly choosing a language to start with and always keeping it interesting. He was flexible in adding additional stops for viewpoints when it was clear the official viewpoint would be fogged over. The recommended lunch restaurant was great, and there are many restaurants one can choose instead at the lunch stop and there is enough time to get in a swim or expire town during the stop. All in all a very good tour at a very good price. Recommend!

The sights were amazing and completely worth the trip. Our guide was nice, but had zero energy and his voice was flat and slow- we joked that he needed to make a tape to play when you’re trying to go to sleep. The guides on our other trips were excellent. Despite the guide and the very limited legroom in the van, the trip is worth it for the sights.

Perfect to visit the beautiful spots of the island without the trouble of driving, considering the hills we were happy not to had rent a car. The guide really explained a lot about the island. He was super friendly and fun. Thank's Nuno:) Lots of stops with the right amount of time in each seeingsight. We loved it. Totally recommended for a first visit of Madère Island♡
